SING! An Irish Christmas featuring Keith and Kristyn Getty

Modern hymn-writers Keith and Kristyn Getty, known for songs such as “In Christ Alone” and “Speak O Lord,” are set to embark on their seventh annual Christmas concert tour of “Sing! An Irish Christmas.”

The Gettys, who have helped to reinvent the modern-hymn form, are now invigorating Christmas carol singing in cities across America. Keith Getty was recently awarded the “Officer of the Order of the British Empire” (OBE) by Queen Elizabeth II for his contribution to “music and modern hymn writing.” The Getty’s Christmas concert tour has grown to be one of the largest annual Christmas concert tours in the nation and has been broadcasted on public television to over 45 million households across the country. They will be joined by their award winning band of instrumentalists – fusing Celtic, bluegrass, Americana, modern and classical music as well as cultural dance and the choral sounds of the holiday.

“We believe that there is no more imperative time for believers to gather together in song than at the Christmas season,” says Keith Getty. “For many, this season represents celebration and joy, yet for others it can be a painful reminder of those we’ve lost. In any instance, we are all strengthened when we declare our faith through singing, and the great Christmas carols are some of the best expressions we have of the truths we believe.”
